Capps didn't know about his all-star bonus

As Adam Kilgore wrote last week, after Matt Capps got to the Nats' clubhouse on Sunday, he was called into Jim Riggleman's office, and was joined by Mike Rizzo and Steve McCatty. After they told him the good news, the meeting ended. Then Rizzo told him more good news.

"Right after the meeting as we were walking out of Jim Riggleman's office, he brought it up," Capps said on 106.7 The Fan's Kevin & Rock Show. "He said, 'I think your agent put a clause in there where you get a little bonus for going to the All-Star Game.' I wasn't aware of that, but after the ballgame [Sunday], first thing I did was call my agent and see if there's a bonus in there and he said there was."

How much? Bill Ladson reported on Twitter that the reliever would get a $50,000 bonus for the honor.

Things to like about Matt Capps

1. He is a good 3 up 3 down type closer, don't see him walking guys for an easy out too often.
2. He is young and if the team is smart they will keep him on the staff as a SU or Closer for a while.
3. When he goes up to the mound people can shout "LETS GO CAPPS" and its funny.
